Wondrous Words: Young Children's Rewritings of Prose and Poetry.
Wolf, Shelby A.; Heath, Shirley Brice
New Advocate, v11 n4 p291-310 Fall 1998
Centers on the power of words (words from literature) that have woven themselves into the lives of the author's two daughters. Examines the children's response to literature as they became writers of prose and poetry in elementary school, showing how, when, where, and why the children use literary language to enhance and express their own verbal and written repertoires.
